On tap at Churchill's for Deschutes' Blitzkrieg.

A: Translucent straw gold with a white cap. Pretty light in color.

S: Lightly phenolic with notes of clove and esters that are redolent of banana and bubblegum. Pretty mild. Tame with no booze or harsh notes. It's like a light Bavarian Hefeweizen.

T: Wheat and clove mingle with light banana and faint bubblegum. No evident alcohol or hop character.

M: Light in body with upper moderate carbonation. Mouthfeel is fluffy and spritzy.

Overall: Seems like a light version of a Bavarian Hefeweizen. Pretty good, but not one of the brewery's finer offerings and not something I'd rush to revisit.
